We had an email go out saying that people were using Bittorrent from home over the VPN and to please stop since it's illegal and taking up bandwidth.
I'm lucky enough to have an excellent engineering manager right now. When he got hired most of us were thinking "Oh great here is another manager:" He came in and said "You guys do great work. My job is to make it easier for you to do your job." We didn't believe him at first but he has proven himself. He came up with a project management database that helped us get our crap together. Instead of jobs falling through the cracks we now have it documented. He was flexible with what we had to fill in. When we complained a field was taking too long to fill in he got rid of it. It has really helped with upper management because when they come around to ask what do we work on we have thousands of records of every little task we do and for whom.
No. You could have a crosswalk button that will make a break in traffic for you for a certain period of time and track you as you cross.
If every car was self driving you could eliminate bridges and traffic lights. You could have full speed ground level crossings where the cars seamlessly weave past each other.
Ouch! I thought your said your dog doesn't bite?
Traveling is stressful. If you opt out you get a free message. What's not to like?
This doesn't necessarily mean humans didn't drink milk. If you leave milk out for any period of time it naturally ferments into yogurt (or something similar). This process the bacteria converts the lactose into lactic acid. This acid then denatures the proteins which is why yogurt is more of a gel. Many people that can't drink milk have no problem eating fully fermented milk products.
This is actually just a modification of the existing Objet printer. We have one at work and it mixes 2 resins. This gives it a great capability. You can load a soft rubber like resin and a hard resin. Then you can program it to create any hardness in between and it will do it by mixing them. So what this new machine does is just add another (or more) resins to the mix so you can control color as well.
This would make sense though since only a baby typically would drink fresh milk unless you refrigerate it. If you leave fresh milk out the bacteria and enzymes in the milk and environment quickly digest the sugars (on the order of hours) and ferment the milk which also helps preserve it.
Right. The moms were just trying to take from other people.
Might as well be the kids father.
Here is how I think it would play out if there was an unrestricted market. Life insurance companies would be able to write life insurance policies that give them ownership of a particular organ. Now depending on your age and health condition you would receive some sort of discount on your premiums. Let's say I have a $500k policy but my organs would go for $200k. They can offer a premium on the difference. This puts incentives in the proper place. They don't want you to die because they have to still pay out a claim. But if you do die they will try to sell the organs as fast as possible. The insurance companies may even try to develope technology to make the organs last longer.
Back in the 80s for some reason my Grandmoyher got Givernment cheese and butter. I think the cheese was in 5 or 10 lb blocks and the butter in 1 lb blocks. She didn't like dairy so she gave them to us. I loved that cheese.
Do they still have that?
The dollar worked for a long time because it was or was backed by an ounce of silver. Since that ended it's had been the legal tender laws and the guns that back it that makes the US dollar work.
